Entre Dos Aguas



With Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin




"You say that I am a legend of the guitar. You have no idea. There are only two or three guitarists that legend can be considered. And above all it is Paco de Lucía." Keith Richards

"When I hear him, I understand I don't know how to play guitar"... Mark Knopfler

I guy I knew in '74 gave me my first Paco LP; Pedro Jóse Ramirez Velasco was from Barcelona, and he had his dad send one as I liked the one Pedro played for me. 8) I still have it.

For me, (like so many people) my journey began when I heard Paco play with Al on Al's solo album. My friends and I were blown away. I was a fan ever since and was lucky enough to see the "Trio" play live a few times. One time in NY (at the Beacon), Steve Morse was the warm-up and he came out at the end of the Trio's performance to play an encore with them. Superb!

RIP Paco!

...the other day I was playing some romantic tracks for my wife and I realized that I played "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" (with Bryan Adams and Paco) after I played a Bob Welch tune. Both of them are no longer with us...we are losing so many good people lately.
